networking and sound failures after apt-get upgrade
 
I just ran an apt-get upgrade on my unstable machine and have run into the following problems:

1. Networking fails, specifically: eth0 not started: Error getting interface flags.

I solved this problem by doing a modprobe 8139too and a networking restart, but I don't know how to safely add it to /etc/modules.conf

2. Sound has stopped working:
It was working prior to the upgrade. sndconfig finds it as Model: Intel Corp.|82801BA/BAM AC'97 Audio. (Not currently supported). During boot I get this message:
Trying to initialize mixer.... failed

I would add more information, but I'm not sure where to find it.

Thanks in advance!!

After some further exploraton I'm running into the problem of

/dev/dsp: no such device
/dev/mixer: no such device

there are symlinks and permissions set at:

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root audio 11 Apr 13 22:22 mixer -> /dev/mixer0
crwxrwxrwx 1 root audio 14, 0 Apr 13 22:22 mixer0

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 11 Apr 13 22:22 audio -> /dev/audio0
crw-rw---- 1 root audio 14, 4 Apr 13 22:22 audio0

If you're using 2.4 kernel, edit /etc/modutils/aliases to include the kernel module for your nic, and then run "update-modules".

If you're using 2.6 kernel, the aliases file to edit is /etc/modprobe.d/aliases.

If you've got the "modconf" utility installed, that may be the easiest method to load kernel modules.

Here's another thread that discusses similar issues:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=172998

That should help you to get the network up again, but I'm not at all sure what causes your sound card problem. Did you upgrade from 2.4 kernel to 2.6 kernel? Do you have the alsa-base package installed? Enabling alsa sound requires that you run "alsaconf" (as root).

Perhaps someone can offer better advices on the sound card issue?

use /sbin/modconf
to add support for your device.
